You see "Preview" on the Menu Bar at the very top, but only for a second?
When I open the program (4.1) that stays there, even though no file is open.
This is with Snow Leopard, I presume. (?)

@toMACsh: No. Actually, Preview 4.x is Leopard. Preview 5.x is Snow Leopard.

@LettuceNTubes: You can always re-install Mac OS X from the CD that either came with your computer or bought from Apple. But that should be your last resort. Also, what happens when you try to open a file? Is there an error message of some kind?

No there is no error message. I double click the application, it opens as if it always would, except after half a second it completely closes down. This means I get to see the menu bar for 0.4 seconds.

My other idea was to make a different application the default for viewing images, but I can't seem to find out how to make that happen. If anyone could let me know about that, it would be very useful.

thanks!

What happens if you select a document and hit the space bar .... does preview open .... can you see the document ?

Drag the Preview plist file out of User library > Preferences to the desktop.
Restart your Mac then reopen preview so it makes a new plist file.
If all OK trash the one on your desktop.
